Today was a very special day for me.
I got to give away our first dozen eggs! Actually...to be totally accurate I gave our first dozen eggs to our oldest daughter. So this egg gift was the first given to someone other than family.
We have some very special neighbors across the street. We have been close to them since we moved to this neighborhood and we enjoy keeping a close eye on them and making sure they are safe and well. My husband (and our other great neighbors) try to be sure that their driveway is always cleared when we get snow. We call anytime we see strange vehicles or anything concerning. But giving them this dozen eggs will always be one of my favorite moments. They told me a few weeks ago that they love chickens and miss just watching chickens. Of course I invited them to come over and enjoy our girls when it gets warmer. When I handed them the dozen eggs today they looked at them with such love and appreciation. Warren said, "You are spoiling us! But I can't wait to have these!"
My heart literally soared. How wonderful to give some of our special eggs to people who don't view them as "ordinary" and "run of the mill". I wish they could know how happy they made me when their eyes lit up.
Our weather is supposed to get very crazy and I know they will be staying inside alot over the next few days. I hope they can enjoy a special meal or two during that time and that it brings them a few smiles.
